The physical and biological experiments with magnets have provided enough evidence and guidance to further explore the other, namely healing properties of Magnets. Through numerous experiments based on calculations and observations, many curative properties have been discovered in many applications.
The continuous influence of terrestrial magnetism and the magnetism of the celestial bodies on lower and higher forms of life has established the fact that the human body is not only affected by magnetic force in various ways but also acts as a magnetic unit by itself. As a matter of fact, every cell in the human body is a micro magnet producing fluctuating magnetic fields day and night. Different organs of the body constitute specialized group of similar cells. Therefore, they tend to produce magnetic fields of incredible magnitude, which depends on the type of activity, i.e. work or rest. Electric currents due to sodium, potassium and chloride ions generated in the process of contraction or signal transmission of the tissues also produce the magnetic field.
Organs like the brain and the heart produce magnetic fields of very high intensities. In fact brain is said to work under the magnetic field unto the magnitude of 3x10888 gauss, especially during sleep. These fluctuating values are greatly altered during diseases like epilepsy
. Similarly, Heart also produces the peak value of about 100-kilogauss, which are altered during diseases like myocardial infarction and ischemia (curtailment of blood supply to the heart).
There are certain assigned biomagnetic values of different organs including the muscles and nerves. These values provide a wide range of information on the status of the health of organs. The discovery has led to the invention of magneto-cardiograms and magneto-encephalon-grams. These machines working on the concept of biomagnetism are far accurate and efficient in detecting the structural changes in and the defective functioning of organs like the heart and the brain than the conventional ones. Russia has taken the lead in the application in the clinical uses of these instruments and has opened up good prospects of prevention of cardiovascular diseases by taking early measures to correct the impending functional and structural defects. In short, a new scientific line of diagnostics has now been developed which is far more encompassing and effective.
The magnetic value of the brain is greatly exaggerated during acute exacerbation through varying degrees in diseases like epilepsy. Even mild disturbances are also recorded in the daily routine.
Magnet dowsing or radiesthesia is an interesting concept that deals with the study and technique of detection of disease in human beings. This phenomenon is now being practiced in many countries and has earned considerable reputation in therapeutics. The scientific reasoning is based on the principle of magnetism and the magnetic emanations rising from the feet to the whole body concentrating on the little pendulum used in magnet dowsing.
The pendulum detects the subtle variations in the altered magnetic emanations of different organs. Noting the movement of pendulum, one can precisely conclude of the impending danger of morbidity. A magnet and a magnetic box are used as a dowser in advance techniques.
According to observations made by several eminent scientists, it is during such phenomena, the occurrence of a number of diseases and growth in the cases of cardiovascular and neuropsychic disorders hike. In fact, studies of about 40,000 cases admitted in different hospitals showed that there was a marked increase in the cases of epidemic plague, diphtheria, grippe, cholera
during increased solar activity. It was also revealed that the multiplication and toxicity of the pathogenic organisms are considerably increased; blood clotting is accelerated and lymphocytes increase.
Scientists have also established a link between heart attacks and geomagnetic activity. The observations conclude that the admissions of heart cases in hospitals increased during days when the earth's magnetic field fluctuated from its normal value to three or four times. The scientists believe that 'pulsating fields react with human heart or brain electrical potential and trigger heart attacks or psychiatric disturbances in persons who are not otherwise in perfect shape and condition.
In reference to magnetic healing, the effect of magnets is ensured to be safe and precise. Man-made permanent magnets have static and constant magnetic fields and have a stabilizing effect on the human beings. They also bring about harmony and equilibrium in the biomagnetic potential of the body. It has been observed in clinical practice with magnets that various patients suffering from disorders like insomnia and psychiatric problems show positive soothing effects when treated with permanent magnets. As a same precautionary measure, detection of approaching storms and other geomagnetic disturbances such as earthquakes, which affect many sensitive persons in various ways, the magnets can be applied to reduce the severity of the psycho-pathological attacks.
Every cell in the human body has a number of biological rhythms, which are inter-related with the rhythms of other cells are closely linked with the concept of cellular magnetism. Millions of such rhythms of various similar types of cells in the body contribute to the larger rhythm such as heartbeat or respiration. Considerable work on the biorhythm of different organs of the human body as well as the higher animals has been done to discover that all the animal tissues such as liver, kidney, glands and skin follow a 24-hour biorhythm. During this biorhythm, hundreds of biochemical changes take place in the body and obey a predetermined pattern of their origination and consummation and thus ensure a fixed type of functions of the body.
Therefore, the state of health can be defined in terms of biorhythm as 'a balanced and synchronized pattern of the biological rhythms of the different systems of the body'. Similarly, disease can be defined as an altered state of the body in which the biological rhythm of different organs is disturbed.
Such disturbances are encountered in almost all the diseases and an exalted malrhythm is found in cancer. The basic approach, with which a disease in magnet-treatment is treated, is to restore the normal biological rhythm of the body by correcting the biomagnetic potential of different organs.
Blood as the Healing Medium:
The most significant medium of Magnetic healing is "Blood". This is so because, blood has been assigned the vital functions of nourishing various organs, carrying back the waste material, distribution and regulation of the natural fluids secreted by some organs, maintenance of the body temperature and help in respiration.
Its property of conducting magnetism and a number of favorable changes in its properties through influence of magnetic field make it an ideal means to Magnetotherapy. These properties of blood helps in improved circulation to various organs, resulting in an effective disposal of metabolic wastes like urea, uric acid, purinesa- product of the uric acid, metabolism and carbon dioxide.
The accumulation or defective disposal of wastes leads to many morbid conditions like gout
, uremia, pyemia, septicemia and a host of other septic conditions. The application of magnets to the body and intake of magnetized water also help in back-dissolution and subsequent disposal of the morbid deposits of cholesterol and calcium.
This is how magnetism when combined with bio-physio functions with the body delivers the most desired and convenient results in therapy.
Magnetic Effect on Concentration and Memory:
Magnets impart tremendous boost to various faculties of brains such as memory, intelligence, concentration and understanding.
Several practitioners of meditation as human volunteers have vouched that the application of magnets leads to better concentration and more intense meditation
. Volunteers, who were students, reported improved concentration in their studies and retention in memory.
Apart from improving these characteristics, magnets help in various psychosomatic disorders, which are on an increase in today's age of tensions and increased stress. A soothing effect of magnets is also noticed in insomniacs who cannot sleep due to mental tension and worries.
Magnets can range from aids, to therapies in psychological imbalances.
Magnetic Effect on Fatty Tissues:
Excessive fat is deposited in the body in the form of adipose tissue. This storage causes obesity, which in turn bestows many adverse consequences like diabetes
, high blood pressure and high risk of heart impairment. Magnets are found to have a favorable effect on the adipose tissue and slowly dissolve the fats to lessen down the obesity
factor. A regular use of magnets also helps in correcting the inherent tendency of certain individuals to the formation and deposition of the adipose tissue.
The principle of Magnetic healing is similar to the correction of the mal-function of the various organs. By correcting the metabolic disorders in such individuals, the magnet brings about the desired effect. The same is applicable to obesity.
Magnetic Effect on Glands:
Glands are the most important chemical contributors for the proper functioning of body organs. The human body is a chemical phenomenon with all its functions depending on a variety of chemical reactions. In fact, some of the most complicated body functions are dependant on the minute quantities of hormones secreted by the endocrine glands, which release these chemicals directly into the blood stream.
These significant glands are pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, pineal and sex glands in males and females. Proper functioning of these glands is important for normal development and growth of various organs and higher faculties such as memory, intelligence and emotional balance in human beings. Deficiency or over-secretion of these hormones by these gland results in severe diseases likes goitre, dwarfism, gigantism, mental deficiency and sterility in women.
Positive effects of magnet have been found on these glands by way of regulation of their functioning and thus prevention and rational cure of the above-mentioned diseases. The effect of magnets in increasing the height in dwarfs by application to the pituitary glands has been verified.
Similar success has been obtained in the treatment of nutritional goitre due to deficiency or mal-assimilation of iodine.
Magnetic Effect on Respiration:
Good respiration is closely associated with improved circulation of blood and oxygenation and vice versa. The result being that diseased conditions like congestion of lungs, bronchitis
show marked relief in the symptoms.
The South Pole of a magnet has the power to reopen the congested lung structures, expand the tissues, improve breathing and bring relief in painful conditions such as bronchitis. Incredible results can be achieved in the treatment of asthma through the application of magnets. Patients undergoing the treatment invariably report free respiration and improvement in the duration of attacks.
Magnetic Effects on Heart:
In a number of experiments regarding the effect of north and south poles of a magnet, it was found that the action of heart is slowed down if the south pole of a magnet is held in the right hand and quickened if held in the left hand. By utilizing this fact, conditions like palpitation can be effectively controlled if a magnet is applied regularly to the right hand.
In a similar fashion, the normal elasticity of the arteries and arterioles can be restored if regular use of a magnet and magnetized water is made. The regular use of magnet helps the blood in dissolving the morbid deposits of the cholesterol and calcium, which cause hardening of the walls of the vessels namely, arteriosclerosis and sclerosis.
